1 February Ohio Arts Council Accepting Applications for Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Grants February 1, 2018 artists, For Artists deadline, For Artists, grant, Individual Artists, Ohio Arts Council, Traditional Arts Apprenticeship 0 The Ohio Arts Council is currently accepting applications for the Traditional Arts Apprenticeship program. The Traditional Arts Apprenticeship program provides support for master artists to work with apprentices to build understanding and proficiency in folk and traditional art forms. By pairing exemplary practitioners of traditional art forms with dedicated apprentices, this program allows for concentrated study and cultural exchange. Traditional Arts Apprenticeship awards support the teaching and sharing of important cultural traditions and enrich the lives of people throughout the state. Master artists may request up to $4,000 to work with one, and if appropriate, two, apprentices. At least 50 percent of the request must be used for master artist honoraria. No match is required. Applications are accepted for apprenticeships in all forms of traditional arts, including traditional music and instrument making, sacred and secular crafts, occupational traditions, folk and ethnic dance, and traditional arts associated with annual celebrations. Master artists and apprentices apply together to this program. Apprentices must live in Ohio, but master artists may live in another state if there is no suitable artist in Ohio. More eligibility details are covered in the Traditional Arts Apprenticeship grant PDF.

Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on March 15, 2018 in order to be considered. Applications should be submitted via the ARTIE system.
